WASHINGTON, D.C. – JUNE 15, 2011 – The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) today announced plans to conduct an educational seminar for broadcasters, manufacturers and others interested in standards development this fall. Co-hosted by Iowa Public Television, the “ATSC Boot Camp” will take place on Oct. 13, 2011 in Johnston, Iowa.
This full-day program will start with a review of the fundamentals of the ATSC standard, like modulation, PSIP and closed captioning, and AC-3 audio technologies. Speakers will review current work on Mobile DTV, 3DTV and audio loudness. The program also will explain ongoing standards developments on “ATSC 2.0,” which includes broadcast-Internet TV opportunities, conditional access technologies and other backwards-compatible enhancements, while touching on long range plans for “ATSC 3.0,” the next-generation television broadcast standards that could be implemented a decade from now.
“Our goal is to provide training on ATSC Standards already in use and brief attendees on standards and technologies that are likely to emerge in the future,” said Mark Richer, ATSC President. “We’re excited to host this event in the Midwest and consider seminars such as these an important part of our organization’s continuing outreach to the broadcasting community.”
Iowa Public Television is located at 6450 Corporate Drive, Johnston, Iowa. For more information and to register to attend, please visit the ATSC website or contact Lindsay Shelton-Gross.
